II. Training & Professional Development

Social impact work requires unique knowledge, skills, and approaches, but importantly the right mindset. IEEE SIGHT has learned that training and professional development in the social sciences is key for SIGHT Groups to implement sustainable and impactful projects with local communities. With that in mind, IEEE SIGHT has determined five key subject areas: 1) Overview of sustainable development; 2) Engineering and sustainable development; 3) Human-centered & community-based solutions; 4) Social impact project management; and 5) Social impact assessment.

Below are an initial set of learning materials under each subject area. Please reach out to email hidden; JavaScript is required for additional information.
